A touch of buttered toast and honey...

Taiwan (formerly Formosa) produces some of the smoothest, sweetest and subtlest oolong teas, traditionally brewed by Buddhist monks at the end of the day. This highly prized Taiwanese dark oolong has been skilfully semi-oxidised to bring forth its characteristic roasted flavour and delicate aroma. With flavours ranging from malty to floral, layered with hints of fruit and spice, fine palates even pick up a touch of buttered toast and honey in the finish…

Brew the perfect cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Best drunk without milk.

A note from Whittard

“I’m a huge oolong fan – the sheer diversity of different flavours is pretty mind-boggling. My favourites are the creamy, almost buttery high grown oolongs grown in Taiwan.”

- Bethan, Specialist Tea Buyer


Taiwan is home to some of the world’s finest oolongs, from sweet and buttery varieties grown at high altitudes to darkly roasted oolongs with a robust, nutty taste. The Taiwanese tea industry was first established when tea workers from Fujian in China crossed the Taiwanese straits in the mid 17th century, profiting from the soaring altitudes of Northern and Central Taiwan to create some of the world’s most spectacular tea gardens. Unlike the large plantations of China, India and Sri Lanka, these smaller tea gardens tend to be family run, creating tastes unique to the particular terrain.

This tea is wonderful! I like to drink it lightly brewed and black but also nice with a bit of milk too.

my friend got me this tea for my birthday and it has to be one of my favourites amoung a few.. the way i like to drink this is to brew it for about 2 mins and then do a rebrew. and drink it in the evening when i want to just sit back and relax with no sound or distractions.. this is a must try
